Kevin,

Here are the recipes I referenced above.

The first is from "Lee's Priceless Recipes", 1998 reprint of the original published in 1895.

Second from "Fortunes in Formulas". My copy published in 1939.

Third from "Book of Formulas: Recipes, Methods & Secret Processes". My copy published in 1945.

Last from "The Universal Receipt Book" reprinted and published in 2009 by Stephen Shepherd. Original from 1824 (plus 1834 extra catalog).

Note that the third text gives specific directions including the heating steps for the japanning of metal as in the case of plane bodies as was asked in the initial posting.
